One of my favorite entertainers at the 2019 Carolina Renaissance Festival was the Celtic band The CRAIC Show. The rhythmic traditional drumming, violin, bagpipes and powerful vocals created a high energy musical experience which definitely inspired the crowd. The band describes their blending styles as World Medieval Music.
These fair maiden portraits kick-off a series of posts from my early November visit to the Carolina Renaissance Festival. I navigated the festival with my Nikon and Profoto B2 with 2 ft Octa softbox. I alternated between the softbox on a ProMediaGear Boomerang on camera mount and off-camera boom pole mount.
Many more to come! For the best viewing experience, click on an image for a high resolution version.
Here’s my next installment from the festival last weekend. It features more of the outstanding cast members. Tomorrow, November the 20th is the last day. Despite the cool weather, I suspect they’ll have another large crowd.
In the final step of my workflow, these images were processed to emulate Kodachrome slide film. This give the images a little extra warmth & contrast, and old school charm!
This post also represents a milestone for my blog, its #100! I appreciate you taking time to visit. Click on an image to see a higher resolution version from my portfolio site.
